Work experience

I started working as a professional web designer and web developer at very young ages. When I was 14 I had my first client jobs and in 2008, at the age of 16, I founded my first own company for web design and development. Since then I have worked with several clients doing quite a wide range of tasks.

After my BSc. in Computer Science in 2014, I decided to set my main focus more on developments and spend only little on design. Now I'm mainly working as a web developer on Laravel (PHP), Vue and React (JavaScript) projects.

Web Developer at netinsiders
Nov 2016 - now

By the end of 2016, I joined the team of netinsiders as a Web Developer. Now at daytime I work there as a Laravel and Vue Developer and by night I work on my own projects for Aheenam.

CEO at Aheenam
Mar 2016 - now

While I was working most of my time as a Freelancer, in 2016 I decided decrease client work and focus more on creating own products. Therefore I changed the type of my business and created a custom brand for this company.

Co-Founder/Web Developer at KERNWERK
Oct 2015 - January 2018

Together with some friends we created the awesome app for digital personal training. I created the backend of first MVP using Laravel as the framework of choice. Due to lack of time and shift of interests, I left this project by the end of 2017.

Web Developer at rathesDot
Apr 2010 - Mar 2016

I basically just changed my name from CreativeCreation to rathesDot, I still had the same clients and did the same job as earlier.

Production Assistant at Kopierland GmbH
Jun 2011 - Mar 2014

This was my first non freelance job. Had this job during my studies of Media Computer Science at University Ulm, where I got great insights of the world of digital printing and print design.

Web Designer at CreativeCreation
Jun 2006 - Apr 2010

This is where my journey in the professional web industry started. Before that, I just created stuff for myself with the idea of promoting my career as a rapper.



It took me quite a while to realize that it's better to be a specialist instead of a generalist. On the other side I'm interested in many aspects of tech and web.

In 2014 I shifted more towards PHP with Laravel and JavaScript (ES2015+) with Vue and React. That's my specialization as a developer.

Additionally I am focused on the aspect of requirements engineering. My bachelor thesis at university was about goal driven requirements engineering. I adopted this method to use it for the whole aspect of running a business to make it profitable as soon as possible.

Last but not least, I read a lot about AI and Machine Learning. I'm not that far that I would call me pro in this field, but it is a goal to get more into the field.


Here are some open sourced projects I actively work on:
